i had the privilege of creating a limited edition screenprint to celebrate the 30th(!) anniversary of ghostbusters.
illustrating the kaiju-like entrance of the stay puft marshmallow man, i chose to treat the poster as an japanese lobby card, complete with terrified onlookers and apropos typography.
quantities of the poster will be released at each of the four stops (new york, chicago, LA, SDCC) on gallery 1988‘s traveling art show, which, in addition to showcasing 13 limited edition prints, will feature tons of original art as well as limited edition apparel. it’s going to be be nuts. full details here.
oh, and the site of the first stop on the tour is near the famous firehouse from the film. so, there’s that.

the wife of one of the maniacs who collect my work reached out to me late last year in hopes of hiring me to do a private commission for his 30th birthday. she gave me a list of all of his favorite movies/video games/music/places he’d traveled and let me pick from those what i thought would make an interesting image. knowing “legend of zelda” was his favorite video game, i chose to make link the centerpiece and distill the other information into icons that would cascade around him.
paying homage to the time-traveling antics of everyone’s favorite hairy canadian short-stack, i’m pleased to announce that my new “back to the future past” design is available today (march 26) at teefury!
for those who might be unfamiliar, teefury is the trendsetter in pop culture mash-up t-shirts. they offer a fresh design every day and make it available for a 24 hour period. after that, it’s gone!
so what’re ya waiting for? get yourself over to teefury before 11:59 PM EST on march 26 and check it out!
as always, thanks for the support!
